new attractions

We are at universal, staying at the HRH. Yeah!!! Noticed in Studios there are areas blocked off and a couple of large cranes. Anyone know what the end results of the construction are going to be?

Thank You in advance...

transformers ride will be placed in that area.


this area is near Mel's and if you are at the lagoon, you can see the cranes in that section.

The cranes near Mel's are going to be Transformers and the cranes where Jaws used to be will be the expanded HP section.

Sorry the weather has been less than Florida like...I want the warmth back!

There are also areas walled off in Simpsons (but no cranes). There, they are going to heavily theme to the Simpsons including new restaurants, props and a new flat ride.
